Hep B non reactive after taking Viread

Hi, I recently got my lab result and was informed my Heb b status is no non reactive after taking viread since March 2010. Should I stop taking Viread now? Thanks

no you must keep viread until you develop a good quantity of hbsab, some researchers stopped viread after 6-12 months of hbsag negative but unless hbsab is detactable you may relapse to hbsag reactive

check your hbsab

Hi Stef Thank you for your response. Below is my AB. ALT and AST on normal range. I don't understand <0.01 value

Component             Your Value       Standard Range
HEP B SURFACE AB 0.99
An Index Value of 1.00 is equivalent to 10 mIU/mL.
However the magnitude of the Index Value is not
indicative of the total amount of antibody present.

My AG is still positive anyways. Here are my other details

HBV RT PCR, QUANT (GRAPH)

Component Results
Component Your Value Standard Range Units
HBV AS IU/ML <20 IU/mL
HBV DNA not detected
LOG10 HBV AS IU/ML CANCELED log10IU/mL
Unable to calculate result since non-numeric result obtained for
component test.

Result canceled by the ancillary

Was told by my GI Doc today to stop taking Viread after several years of taking. 6 months ago He told me chances are  that I will take Viread the rest of my life and that I should not miss a single dose. But after my last blood test and ultra sound everything is normal, He now told me to stop Viread and go back to his office after a year for blood test. I'm guessing I am now developing my immunity against the virus. Planning to see my internist to confirm. God healed me. Nothing is impossible with HIM.

I would like to think Tenofovir helped to cure you. Good luck. On the safe side, maybe you should check again after 6 month.
